Brown Turkey Figs

Brown turkey figs have a maple brown color. Soft, juciy, and refreshingly sweet, these delicious fruits grow in California under the hot sun.  They grow on the iconic ficus tree, which produces fruit twice a season for up to 35 years.  They are wrapped ina pliable skin. Inside is the fig's meaty soft flesh, coursed with edibly seeds.  Interestingly enough, figs are actually a flower that inverted itself giving it its unique texture. Serve them raw, in fruit displays, paired with cheese plates, in salads, or desserts.  They can be roasted and grilled for a more pronounced flavor.
